Hero Arts blog. But the perfect way to see it in action is a short and really fun video by Libby Hickson for Hero Arts.
I love versatile. I need to be able to use a product way more than just a few times. And I don't want to be bored making the same card over and over. So when Hero Arts sent me this kit last week, I set out to use it in a variety of ways.
Here are three very different cards*** I made with the kit:
1. Watercolored Layers
Layered the larger of the poinsettia images using Ranger Distress Inks onto watercolor paper, and lightly painted with water after each layer, adding in some yellow with a Tombow marker. I wasn't trying to align the layers -- was going for a loose look. Added white in the centers with a gel pen.
Flicked some white paint, added the sentiment, and some white enamel dots. Oh, and if you look closely, you'll see the impression of the back of a rectangle die.
2. Simple Row
Can't get much easier than this. Stamp a row of the solid flower, with Wink of Stella glitter pen over the flowers.
Here I used the stamp set to layer the flowers, following the graphic that Hero Arts includes in the kit. Easy to align the flower layers -- just use the center of the flower as your guide. Then die cut.
This is post is already long, so I'm not including a supply list (also because most of the supplies are from the kit), but if you have any questions, ask away!
And now let's go see what these fabulous artists made with the kit!
